Prima edizione. Il catalogo della prestigiosa biblioteca del Cardinale Giuseppe Imperiali fu redatto dal Fontanini, all’epoca suo bibliotecario: sono descritte oltre ventimila opere, nella prima parte ordinate per autore, nella seconda per argomento. Taylor: “The care shown in describing and classifying the books makes the Imperiali catalogue and its subject-index a good source of information about seventeenth-century books.” Pollard & Ehrman: “the Imperiali catalogue … includes under each author’s name all his contributions to the periodicals and miscellanies in the library as well as his separately published books. For this reason it was recognised as a useful work of reference on its own.” La biblioteca fu dispersa alla fine del Settecento.
